Aaron Paul and Sigourney Weaver join Ridley Scott's latest
Ridley Scott's next is biblical tale Exodus. And he's been adding interesting faces to its cast...
Ridley Scott continues to spin plates of projects he's interested in directing, with both Prometheus 2 and Blade Runner 2 going through development at the moment. His next film will be an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Counselor. That has Brad Pitt in the lead role, and is already completed. And it looks as if the movie he's moving onto next is Exodus.
The biblical story has been adapted for the screen by Steven Zaillian, Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, and the film will follow the story of Moses, as he leads the Israelites out of Egypt.
So far, Christian Bale has signed on to play Moses, and Joel Edgerton is to be Ramses. Now signing on to play Ramses parents are Signourney Weaver (reuniting with Scott again following Alien and 1492: Conquest Of Paradise) and John Turturro.
Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul, meanwhile, will play Hebrew slave Joshua. That's assuming negotiations are concluded successfully.
The film is set to go before the cameras later this year, and has a release date of December 12 2014.
